(Panel Discussion)

When former drug warriors like US House Speaker John Beohner and ex-Toronto Police Chief and Tory MP Julian Fantino become drug company executives, some who were hit hardest by the drug war – Indigenous people, people of colour, the poor and the marginalized – are understandably angry and frustrated. This panel will look at efforts to ensure the revenues from legalization extend beyond rich businessmen, with attention to social responsibility issues like gender-equity, energy use and food security.
